My Precious Girl,
I know one of the hardest things I will ask you to do is to pray for those who persecute you or your loved ones. My request that you do is not really for your enemies’ benefit as much as it is for yours. I know your heart because I created you, and I know that heartache can cause you to become someone you do not want to be. I ask you to pray for your enemies so you will not become like them. I ask you to pray for your adversaries so their actions will not keep you from acting as My beloved child. I ask you to pray for those who do unjust things so you will learn to let Me deal with those who cause pain to My children. If you will surrender your heart to Me instead of to the enemy, you will find the power to overcome and the peace that passes all understanding. I promise I will make things right. I am a just God, and you can trust Me.
Your protective Father in heaven
But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! – Matthew 5:44
Treasure of Truth
If you pray for your enemies, you won’t become like them.
